This is one movie; don’t know how many times it had watched by me. When I ever I want to come out of the stiff challenges, I will play this movie only for few heart touching scenes. One for friendship values, another for sheer determination & will power to come out of the crisis with the potential.
The Movie was based on Ashwini’s Novel Mrugatrishna meaning Mirage, meaning running behind a desire which doesn’t exist. This movie was directed by Chi. Dattaraj, brother of greatest lyricist in Kannada Cini world Chi. Udayashankar.
The scene, where in Rajkumar was getting scolded by his father, played brilliantly by K S Ashwath for getting deviated from his responsibilities, by taking caring of his villagers instead of his own family. Rajkumar straightaway walks out of his house, and sits on top of a hillock which is fondly called by the villagers as Soori Gudda. Here the Rajkumar dives in to the character, when he expresses his inability to heed to the family requirement when it was mattered most, it trickles the heart beat by level one or two. The mannerisms, body languages, the expressive eyes, dialogue delivery stands apart.
This scene stands tall for two reasons,
· In this movie, mother character played by Shanthamma, who is living with the Rajkumar family as one of the family member even now, brilliantly convey the message to her son, how difficult her family situation is. And then his father narrates him what he is suppose to do.
This shows always parents wait for a chance to tell their miseries, when the chips were down, and also convey the message in a meaningful way to touch the heart, rather than hammering all the time, what their off-springs suppose to do.
· When Rajkumar is in blinds, how to bail his family out of the woods, there comes a character, played very well by the smart hero of the Indian cinema Ananth Nag, as his friend. Here he never tries to convince Rajkumar, instead he inspires him to venture in to a new arena, where he can excel.
This scene showcases friendship is all about unconditional love and affection. When someone is down with confidence, he needs only encouragement, inspiration to come out of the deep slumber.
